I have been in the Wine Industry for 16 years. Going to work each day makes a difference to so many lives. By supporting my vibrant and dynamic team of Consultants and energetic Producers and Winemakers, I can honestly say that my life is hugely satisfying.
My objective has always been to showcase the very best that the South African Wine industry has to offer and allow my clients immediate access to "the cream of the crop."
When I embarked in the Wine Industry 10 years ago, it was a motivation I experienced, and having the most enjoyable, fruitful and success at The Wine Society. I enjoy the challenge of new business and wine selling and having the interaction with my customers.
Wine is something that I associate to my daily life style; wine is a social drink worldwide, and having the privileged of the uncountable Wine Estates on our doorstep. We never stop learning and most of all tasting to determine the quality and passing this onto our customers. Wine is like us, it improves with aged.
I love working at The Wine Society...where else can one enjoy sharing with Wine-Lovers my choices and experience with all the amazing wines we get in straight from the Estates.
Our monthly trips and luncheons at a different Estate also make my 'job' so enjoyable.
I have been involved in the Wine Industry for the last 8 years and earlier in my career undertook the Intermediate Wine Academy Course which furthered my interest in wine. Most of all I enjoy engaging with my diverse clients, getting to know them and opening them to richer vistas of their wine experience.
After living abroad and getting to taste wines from different countries, I returned to South African and entered the wine industry. I joined the TWS in 2006 and have built up a solid base of diverse wine lovers, collectors and drinkers. I am also currently studying psychology and social work through UNISA. "It's fantastic to work in such a dynamic industry and be able to speak to clients who are as enthusiastic about wine as I am. Since entering the wine industry, my taste buds have never known a dull moment."
The enjoyment of interacting with my clients over the last six years has been accentuated by the fact that I am learning continuously and I'm able to share my knowledge with my clients. Discovering new wine estates, grape varietals, different styles of wines and the little gems which we are able to offer are all highlights of the job. At the end of the day, having a delicious glass of wine with the perfect meal has got to be one of life's great pleasures!

My parents have both been heavily involved in the Wine Education side of the wine industry and I have been exposed to this wonderfully diverse industry from a young age. But I truly fell in love when I started studying wine in earnest; there are so many interesting levels and layers in the wine industry, including the immensely enjoyable aspect of tasting/drinking. I am a qualified wine judge, a Wine Specialist Tour Guide and I have completed my Diploma with the Cape Wine Academy. I am pleased that The Wine Society gives me an opportunity to offer my clients a great selection of outstanding wines.
I am passionate about wine and people, which makes a great combination. I love my clients getting a wine which I have recommended and coming back for more, or asking me to ring friends who have tasted wine at their homes and asking me to phone them, end to a perfect day!!
With 14 years' experience in the wine industry, several Cape Wine Academy courses and loads of fun tasting wines and meeting wine makers, I have a clear understanding of viticulture and great passion for wines especially those of outstanding quality. I love to match the best wine to my client's requirements and taste preferences, for their ultimate enjoyment! Their satisfaction is my motivation, whether casual quaffer or connoisseur. "Wine is the water of the good life"
Being a wine consultant at the Wade Bales Wine Society can be challenging. We constantly strive to provide our clients with the very best wine that we can find, and having this approach separates our company from the rest. We pride ourselves as specialists in our field.
There is nothing more rewarding than a client who trusts your palate and judgement, and refers you to his friends and colleagues. That alone cultivates motivation and a genuine passion for wine.
